The heavy metal adsorption characteristics on metakaolin-based geopolymer
Abstract Since porous materials often function as adsorbents, this study chose to investigate the adsorption of heavy metals by geopolymers. The geopolymer was made by condensing a mixture ofExpand

Geometric Approach to Factor Analysis for the Estimation of Orthogonality and Practical Peak Capacity in Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Separations
Procedures were developed for the estimation of orthogonality in two-dimensional (2D) separations. The parameters evaluated include peak spreading angle, retention correlation, and practical peakExpand

Mutagenic activity of methyl-substituted tri- and tetracyclic aromatic sulfur heterocycles.
A number of polycyclic aromatic sulfur heterocycles have been identified in coal-derived products and in shale oils. The mutagenic activity of some of these compounds, including dibenzothiophene,Expand
